Originally named Bois d'Arc, the city was renamed Bonham in 1844 in honor of James B. Bonham who died at the Battle of the Alamo. The city was incorporated in 1848. The Dennison, Bonham and New Orleans railway branch of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas rail line was built from Bonham to Denison by 1887.
